A loan of $5,950 helped a member to pay for chicken and beef.


Source De Vie 1 Group's story

Laudra, age 33, is married with no children, but she provides for her niece. She is a member of the Source de Vie 1 group. Laudra owns a butcher shop that she has been operating for 3 years. She plans to use the loan to buy chicken and beef to stock her shop. Her business strategy is to reduce the price for customers who buy in large amounts. This practice encourages customers to return and to buy from her for large events. Laudra has received 4 previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner. She has a good repayment record. She wants to continue to grow her butcher shop and build a large boutique and counter. She would also like to have a large walk-in freezer one day. Laudra wishes for her niece to grow up and help her to run this business.

In this group: Laudra, Josephine, Juliette Nee, Rosine Lossi, Sylvie Varthan
